Brexit confrontation

Prime Minister is facing an uprising by senior Conservative MPs over plans to efficiently block the UK leaving the EU without a deal on 31 October. The leaders of the rebellion, who held talks with Boris Johnson earlier, were senior figures in Theresa May’s and David Cameron’s governments. The former chancellor has been cooperating the rebels’ activities. The rebels move was not merely designed to block a no-deal exit but also to give Parliament proper time to examine and carry any new deal agreed. The former attorney general is a firm supporter of another referendum on the UK’s future in Europe, with the alternative to remain. Mr Stewart, who during the Tory leadership campaign accused Mr Johnson of not being correct about his opinion on no deal, proposed such a consequence would be mentioned for 40 years, and would forever harm the party’s reputation. UK Parliament returns after summer break. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to leave the European Union. Johnson has lost his majority in Parliament, with the desertion of Conservative Phillip Lee to the Liberal Democrats. The opposition, comprising members of Johnson’s party, is trying to pass legislation to postpone Brexit. Johnson, who is addressing Parliament present, has said that if his opponents succeed he will call early elections. Boris Johnson, speaking before the British Parliament for only the second time since becoming prime minister, is facing a revolt of lawmakers who are furious about his plan to close them down and who are hopelessly trying to halt Britain from leaving the European Union without a withdrawal deal on Oct. 31.The opposition, includes members of Johnson’s Conservative Party, is pursuing to take control of the agenda and pass legislation to postpone Brexit by further three months. Johnson has cautioned that if his opponents succeed, he will initiate a general election and hinder those who vote against him this week from racing as Conservatives. In Parliament, Johnson stated that Tuesday was the 80th anniversary of Britain’s entrance into World War II and UK still stands then as now for democracy for the rule of law. He claimed that UK was making advancement in talks with European Union leaders about a systematic Brexit. Johnson infuriated adversaries by getting the queen’s approval to suspend Parliament for five more weeks starting as early as Monday, as UK is trying to tackle its most grave political juncture in years. Several legal challenges have been filed against Johnson’s move to suspend Parliament.
Doubts of the economic unclear resulted by the political commotion, the British pound declined to its lowest level against the dollar in about 35 years, apart from a short plummet in 2016 expected for technical reasons. Johnson’s warning of a snap election is objected as much at his own party as at the opposition. On Monday, Johnson said he would oust Conservative members of Parliament out of the party if they voted against his Brexit design. This means that they would be not able to race as Conservatives in any forthcoming election. On the contrary the ancestor Theresa May, who did everything she could to keep her party united, Johnson is following strategy obviously objected at amalgamating the Brexit vote and managing UK out of the bloc, same if that means curtailing his party by dismantling nonconformists. This means that some divide in the party. Philip Hammond, who was Britain’s finance minister only a few weeks ago, told that he would back legislation to delay Brexit There were enough members to pass legislation. David Gauke, a senior rebel, wrote in the Times that he would support the legislation to delay Brexit by three months, in spite of the menace to be thrown out of his party. Guto Harris, Johnson’s former communications director, said that Johnson risks “historical humiliation” in the Brexit tactics. Boris Johnson’s second Parliament address a rowdy affair as Brexit appears. A general election, which Johnson allies expects could occur on Oct. 14, could either go down Johnson’s government or give him a widespread instruction to push his promised “do or die” Oct. 31 Brexit. Corbyn has said his preference the day is to introduce emergency legislation to hinder UK from leaving the EU without an agreement in place to regulate trade, border security and other vital problems of no deal Brexit. Most policy makers in Parliament object leaving without a way out plan, something many experts say could be economically harmful and lead to food and medicine shortages. Johnson on Monday accused his opponents of seeking another useless delay. Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said that the delay legislation was deeply irresponsible and counterproductive. The House of Lords would also have to approve any delay legislation. Shami Chakrabarti, a Labour Party member of the Lords, stated that she would support the bill and the result. Johnson also said that any delay would disturb progress on discussion with the EU over a get out deal. He said it would undermine the government’s negotiating position. Up till now the government has put forward “no proposals” and there is not even a negotiating team. If Johnson calls an early election, he will need the support of two-thirds of Parliament.
It would be easy, because the opposition would be eager about an opportunity to dislodge him at the polls. Mary Creagh, a Labour politician, that a general election is not the answer at this time. Creagh insisted she worried that Johnson could plan the election for sometime after the end of October, which will be out of the EU on Oct. 31, by failure. Johnson says he would strike a deal with the European Union, even though he would leave without a deal. Farage, a Brexit tough liner, claims that UK should leave unmindful of the terms.
